Should your dreamhouse be located across the pond, or elsewhere, you'll be able to tune in with the help of a VPN, which allows you to change your device's IP address to unlock content that might not be available in your physical location. 

We highly recommend Express VPN, the top-rated VPN from our sister site, TechRadar. You can try it risk-free with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, your activity is secure, data is private and help is available whenever you need, 24/7. (Should you encounter any issues while using the VPN, remember to delete the cookies from your device or switch to a new server.)

Here's how to get started with a VPN for Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge:

1. Discovery + is a service that is free to watch, but you will need to create a separate ITV hub account in order to start streaming. ExpressVPN is a complement to your account.

2. Follow the download instructions for Express VPN

3. Open the app, and select your server location as anywhere in the US. 

4. Once Express VPN is installed and your locale is set to the Us, log onto your Discovery + account and follow the instructions to start streaming Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge.
